'Reading a book is like re-writing it for yourself. You bring to a novel, anything you read, all your experience of the world. You bring your history and you read it in your own terms.'- Angela Carter

Harry Potter #17

This is a meme hosted by me here at my blog :).The aim of this meme is to share with fellow bloggers a character, spell, chapter, object or quote from the books/ films/ J. K. Rowling herself or anything Potter related! I will be picking a topic within HP for us to focus on each week and then if anyone wants to take part feel free! All I ask is to link back here, to my blog :). There is now a full list of the topics to come here


                   Must-have fandom item. 
                               
           Harry Potter Page to Screen: The Complete Film Making Journey


Product Description (Amazon)
Worthy of a vault at Gringotts, this amazing limited edition collection includes eight exquisitely crafted volumes shelved with a scale prop replica of The Monster Book of Monsters and a gilded, oversized portfolio with five frame-able prints of concept art. Featuring never-before-published art and text chronicling the making of the Harry Potter films, the set is limited to just 3,000 copies worldwide.

Seven of the volumes were created expressly for this collection and delve into different aspects of the filmmaking, showing how the team designed locations, graphics, costumes, creatures, and special effects. A book of the paintings of Hogwarts showcases the exquisite artistry of each. A keepsake book filled with snapshots and personal photos looks at the lasting relationships between cast and crew. The eighth volume is a cloth-bound edition of the New York Times Best-seller, Harry Potter: Page to Screen. All of these precious objects are housed in a collectible box that looks like it came from Diagon Alley. Arriving at your doorstep with a numbered certificate of authenticity, this limited edition is the ultimate collectible for any wizard or Muggle.

This collector’s edition includes: 
• A cloth-covered case, styled to look like a shelf from a shop in Diagon Alley 
• A cloth-bound edition of Harry Potter: Page to Screen

I would absolutely ADORE to have this! It does not come in at a cheap price however, it is £410.95 currently on Amazon! One day, when I win my millions, it will be in my library. Haha. What is your must have fandom item?

  1. I stumbled on this meme last week at Angela's Anxious Life and had to get involved on the weeks that I can. What a great idea! I love the item you posted. I would definitely love reading the film-making journey as well. Here is my HPM. Old Follower :D Jaclyn @ JC's Book Haven.

  3. I have a publisher friend, and when I visited her saw these absolutely amazing hardback editions of all the books, which I haven't seen anywhere else. They're super expensive, but one day...
